My Memories of September 11

What were you doing on September 11, 2001? A day no one forgets. I was attending high school in Houston, Tx. It was a sunny morning. It was a strange coincidence. Precisely on this day and at the time of the event, I was attending my US government class. I remember we were pledging allegiance…

Chronicles of a Pandemic

It was a warm summer morning, the day I woke up and saw everything very different. From the outside, it all kind of looked the same: The birds were signing, the sun was shining, and the routinely activities of daily life were right there, waiting for me to take action: The kids were hungry and…

Reflexiones del Presente

Hay cosas que parecen ser irremediables en el comportamiento humano; una de esas esas cosas es nuestra incapacidad de disfrutar el presente.  Siento que una fuerza misteriosa se ha apoderado de nosotros. Y esa fuerza nos ha privado de lo que realmente se llama vivir. Vivir es estar aquí, deleitarme por cada palabra que escribo,…

Why I Started Writing? (And Never Plan to Stop!)

I started writing when I was seven years old. I still remember when my parents took me to the supermarket to do the weekly shopping, how fascinated I was by the office supplies section: Full of colorful notebooks and pens from all sizes and textures. Still today, I can spend hours just checking out agendas,…

Inspiración…¿Dónde Estas?

Para todos aquellos que nos dedicamos al arte de crear: Escritores, artistas de obras visuales, músicos, bloggers, diseñadores… es común adjudicar nuestro trabajo a esa musa, esa energía etérea, invisible que nos susurra de pronto al oído y produce en nosotros una necesidad de entrar en acción, de expresar el mensaje que hemos recibido… esa…

I’d rather be crazy….

and happy, than being normal and boring. That was the thought that crossed my mind while I passed by a bus stop and observed how people were looking at me in a sort of disbelief: It was snowing, minus two degrees, very early in the morning and this lady is running and smiling like crazy…

Declutter Your Mind…Declutter Your Life

I’m sitting right now in my favorite place in the living room: At my writing desk, gazing at the wonderful forest that happen to be right in front of my house. I took a small break to observe my surroundings: I like to see my living space tidy, clean, organized… nothing should be out of…

¿Vale la Pena Pagar el Precio de Ser Coherente?

Hoy quiero compartir una pequeña reflexión sobre una palabra que no escuchamos muy a menudo últimamente, pero que es muy poderosa cuando nos decidimos a aplicarla en nuestra vida: La coherencia. Tener coherencia en la vida, conlleva al acto de pensar, sentir, hablar y hacer lo que nos dicta nuestra guía interior, nuestro corazón. Es…

The Myth of Work-Life Balance

Ohh yes! come to me, work-life balance. The mantra we hear over and over again. Everybody that has corporate, industrious kind of job, knows that this is some sort of aspiring living style… a promised land of balance, prosperity and well-being. Where does this idea came from? Although it appears to be New Age, the…

My Last Day on Earth

Today I woke up as usual. After the morning rituals of washing my face and cleaning my teeth, I kept gazing at the window. It’s a new year. Another fresh morning. The snow was falling from the branch of a nearby tree. I kept gazing outside, at the whole spectacle; the sunrise appearing at 08:15hrs……
